I grew up in a small town (Atlanta,TX) where everyone knew everyone and everything about everyone. This was a bit of problem for me since I was a bit of a trouble maker in my younger years and to be honest survived only by the grace of God. After high school, I went to College Station to continue my pursuit of my own interests and what I thought would best serve me later in life. After graduation from college, when all the friends were gone, the job was not all it was suppose to be, and I had no idea how to make a relationship work, my life culminated into a perfect storm that led me to my perfect Creator. So, at the age 24, on my mom’s back porch, I surrendered the mess I had made of my life to Jesus. Immediately, I knew not only that God was real, but also that He cared. There was so much guilt surrounding things I had done which I had carried for years. That night on the porch the guilt was gone. I did not deserve it, but God rescued me from the mess I had created and over the next few years gave me a wonderful family, a job that is so much more than I could ever have imagined, and a relationship with Him that rocks. The road has not always been easy since that night on my mom’s porch but I have truly seen God remain true to His Word.
